‘You have zero class’: Anonymous issues blistering attack on N.S. justice minister over lack of charges in Rehtaeh Parsons case
One day after threatening to release the identities of four boys allegedly involved in the gang rape of teenager Rehtaeh Parsons, the hacktivist group Anonymous has issued a blistering attack on Nova Scotia Justice Minister Ross Landry and other authority figures over their decision not to prosecute in the case.
“What we have learned is certainly appalling, but it wasn’t the act of rape that shocked us. It was the behavior of the adults in Rehtaeh’s life that we found most disturbing,” the Anonymous group “Operation Justice for Rehtaeh” said in a Thursday morning press release that took aim at “school teachers, administrators, the police and prosecutors.”
“All of you have created a mess and instead of taking responsibility and cleaning it up, the first thing you did yesterday morning was get on television and defend your jobs. You have taught the young men in your community a terrible lesson: rape is easy.” (Facebook)
Here, here. For all those who don’t live here, Halifax and Dartmouth people are livid.
But not enough. Did you know her school isn’t holding a memorial service or even offering grief councillors for her friends?
I hate everything. Anonymous if ever there was a time to use your power, use it on this. Use it for every time someone wasn’t believed or nothing changed for the victim, use it because this was a sweet, caring young person who deserved better than this.
I just heard about this this morning and that’s infuriating that the school isn’t doing anything.
